Markus Jung bouldering in the Frankenjura

Since nobody honestly would recommend bouldering on a semi-broken foot that hurts even when walking, we agreed to not put the stress on Dave. Instead the incredibly talented and versatile Markus Jung (watch him deep water soloing above the Verdon here) completes our list of world class climbers. Markus is a rock climber first and foremost but is notorious for cameo appearances at various competitions, where he usually shocks the established comp climbers. Markus is serving his civil service year in the Frankenjura and what we hear from his quick ascents of 8c’s and above, is in excellent shape for Saturday!

For more philosophy about climbing and rad action show up next Saturday at the BRI.

Dave will be one of the participants.

update August 12, 17:00
When I told Dave about the concept in 2007, he was imediately psyched and interested in participating.
On Juli 9 though he sent me the following message with some bad news:
Hey man,
I would love to come. The reason I have not responded until now is I almost broke my foot 37 days ago, and it is still healing and considerably hurt. I would LOVE to come, I just have to see if I can even climb in the first place by that date! So, I hope I can affirm to you maybe next week, after my next osteo apt, wether or not its game on. As for the moment, man, life has been really hard on the level of this injury.
sorry to be pain in the ass….

It’s all up in the air at the Boulder Worldcup in Eindhoven!
June 12, 2009, 9:30 am
Filed under: News

The last Boulder Worldcup of the year started this morning in Eindhoven, NL. Till now it is not clear who will go home with the trophy, neither at the girls ranking, nor the boysranking. At the boys Rustam Gelmanov, Killian Fischhuber, Gabriele Moroni and Jonas Baumann have the potential chance to take home the trophy of the overall worldcup this year, even when i don’t know yet what is with Rustam, who got injured last week in Vail. With the girls it is kind of equal. Anna Stöhr, last years winner and Akiyo Noguchi will have a close race here.

Udo of Udini Media Works is also in Eindhoven, on the one hand to capture the action for his forthcoming book ‘Licence to Boulder’, but also to have a look for other potential participants for the Bronx Rock Invitational, having some geen cards in his pocket.

You can follow the worldcup via livestream here.

BRI-participant Jonas Baumann, maybe the biggest talent in competition climbing in Germany, won the Bouldering Worldcup in Vail (USA) last night. Congratualations, Jonas! After a lot of good results in the last year, this is something like the peak in his climbing career so far. Jonas will also participate in the Bronx Rock Invitational this year, held on the 15th of August, havin’ also won this event two years ago. We’re working on the organization, posters and other stuff right now, so stay tuned for updates soon!
